Post: Beak injury
Posted by Jen on 7/07/08
Today, my female Fischer lovebird landed on my very cage-
aggressive African Grey's cage. The grey immediately
latched onto the lovebird's lower mandible and snipped off
a good portion of it. There was no bleeding, but now she
is unable to close her beak enough to break open any
seeds. She does eat pellets, but she usually pulverized
them first. If I take her into my vet, will they be able
to do anything? She is otherwise acting her normal self.
I did pulverize some pellets for her. Do you think she
will be able to eat? Should I wet down the crushed pellets
for her to try to eat? Any advice would be appreciated!
